Winter Indoor Program

About The Program

AYSO offers an additional coed Winter Indoor Program for players who wish to continue playing soccer through the winter. 

This program takes place on Saturdays, January through March, at Chicago Futsal Academy, 6122 N Clark. These are fast paced, exciting, skill building games. Space is limited. This program is hugely popular and fills up quickly, so make sure to register early!

All divisions are coed. Each team will have a proportional balance of ages and will be led by volunteer coaches.

Check out the Winter Indoor Soccer FAQ.

When does the season start and end?
The 2023/24 Winter Indoor season runs during December, January, February and March.

When are the games played?
Games started at 12:00 PM and ending at 8 PM on 3 fields. 

Who is eligible?
AYSO Indoor Soccer is open to 7U thru 19U. Teams are co-ed. Players who did not play in the fall outdoor season will have to pay the AYSO National Player Fee in addition to the region's registration fee.

How many spots are available?
We will roster a limited number of players for Winter Indoor Season.

Who coaches the teams?
As with all AYSO programs, we rely on volunteers and will be asking for volunteer coaches.
We require that all coaches be Safe-Haven certified, CDC: Concussion certified, and AYSO Coach certified for the appropriate age division.  There is not a separate certification for Indoor.  Our first priority is to ensure we have enough qualified coaches for each team, and then we try to ensure that the teams are as evenly balanced as possible. 

Coaches, please sign up for your Winter Indoor division, even if you are a registered coach in a Fall/Spring division. A separate registration must be completed for each division you will be coaching. Open the Volunteer tab in your My Account page and click on 'Find Volunteer Roles'. If you do not see your  Winter Indoor division, click on 'Show More' and select the Coach role in your child's Winter Indoor Program Division. A background check must be run on every AYSO volunteer once per year. If you have completed a background check for the current membership year, then you must sign up to coach a Winter Indoor team, but you do not need to submit a new background check.

What does it cost and when can I register?
The fee for 20224 was $190.

How are teams rostered?

We make every effort to keep outdoor teammates together for Indoor, but we cannot guarantee that this will happen. Our main objectives are to strive for balanced and competitive teams, distributing boys and girls and travel players fairly across all the teams (remember, this is a coed league). This means that we may split up outdoor teammates and travel teams to avoid imbalance in skill level as we build the rosters for Indoor.

Yes.  The teams are coed and that format has proven to be successful and beneficial for the boys and girls who have played with us in past seasons.  It works very well. Please encourage your player to embrace this unique opportunity available only in AYSO's Winter Indoor Program.

Uniforms & Equipment?
All registered players will receive a team-specific jersey. Players provide their own shorts and socks. All players are required to wear shin guards. Indoor turf soccer shoes are recommended, but gym shoes are acceptable. Outdoor cleats are prohibited.

Is it fun?
Is this a rhetorical question?  Yes, Indoor season is a lot of fun.  The league is a blast, and every year we have kids tell us that Indoor Soccer is their favorite activity. The action is fast and furious on a small turf field with no out-of-bounds or throw-ins. Play is 7v7 or 6v6, with substitutions made on the fly. And with all fields dedicated exclusively to AYSO during our program time, it's also a great gathering spot for friends, family, and fans.

Is there a tournament at the end of the season?
Yes, we will host our annual Indoor SoccerFest tournament the final week of the season.

How do I register?
Please register on our website using the same Blue Sombrero system and login information you used for Fall or Spring registration. 

When should I register?
Now.  The league is very popular and fills fast so register as soon as you can.

Refund Policy
Registered players who withdraw from the program prior to the first day of the program will be issued a 50% refund. No refund is issued for withdrawal requests received after the program starts.
